Re: The advantages of handwriting: research summaries provided by Dr Kerry Hempenstall

“The accumulated evidence also supports the proposition that handwriting and spelling play an important role in writing development (Graham, 2006b). First, handwriting and spelling are easier or less cognitively demanding for more skilled than less skilled writers. Second, there is a large body of ...

The advantages of handwriting: research summaries provided by Dr Kerry Hempenstall

The topic of 'writing in sand' came up in one of my networks with a request for any research on this topic. As always, Dr Kerry Hempenstall was able to provide some research summaries featuring handwriting. There is plenty of evidence supporting a role in handwriting in the development of reading an...

Re: Various responses to Lucy Calkins' "Science of Reading" essay.'

Here is a truly heartfelt collective letter rebutting Lucy Calkins' essay. It is really important that program authors and publishers are not shielded from real people and real children who suffer as a consequence of flawed guidance and flawed material - no matter how well-meaning the authors and pu...

Eng: ''Plenty of schools are still ticking endless boxes' Michael Tidd

Headteacher Blogger, Michael Tidd, writes very sensible posts in my opinion. I myself have written about the crazy assessment regimes in England's early years.
